I love skirts and I love wrap skirts, and I wanted to put some old pacman sheet I had damaged to good use... and I came up with this! This was my first time not working from a pattern, so I had no idea how it would turn out. Basically I took one of my skirts, layed it down on the pacman sheet, and drew around it with yellow marker, leaving an approx. 1 inch seam allowance. I needed three pannels for each side, and lemme tell ya, they didn't exactly all come out correctly. (I used one panel as the "pattern" for the rest..) I decided I wanted to make it a reversable skirt because I actually adored both sheets I was using (the flower sheet was my grandmother's). I really didn't have anything to guide me with this.. but I think it turned out rather well. I think the next time I attempt something like this, I'll take my time sewing it, instead of staying up till 5am trying to figure it out. Cheesy Anyway, here are the pics, and I can try to post a tute if anyone is curious.

Me sporting the pacman side of the skirt. <3

and wearing the reverse side with the tie in the front. You can really wear the tie in the front or the back. I have several skirts that do either. I think I based it off one that tied in the front.. but it also had pockets, and this one doesnt. Cheesy

SEW CUTE! haha sorry.

I love the pac man side.  Man do bedsheets rock or what, they make such original creations at like a fraction of the cost of actual fabric.
You put the ol' sheet to good use, you've given it dignity and the opportunity to be loved and respected.

Great job.

Thanks! This was my first time using sheets for fabric. It's actually kinda nice, since it's almost like having a mini blanket around my legs. Cheesy I actually have another set of flat sheets for pacman.. but those shall remain on my bed! XD
